KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee coach Butch Jones says he isn’t planning on making lineup changes to an offensive line that has given up the most sacks in the Southeastern Conference.
The Volunteers yielded six sacks Saturday as they fell 10-9 to Florida for their third consecutive loss. Tennessee has given up 18 sacks through the first five games of the year.
Jones said the current starting linemen are "the five we feel gives us the best opportunity on Saturdays." The starting line includes juniors Kyler Kerbyson, Marcus Jackson and Mack Crowder and freshmen Jashon Robertson and Coleman Thomas.
Tennessee replaced all five of last year’s starting offensive linemen and lost left tackle Jacob Gilliam to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the season opener.
Tennessee (2-3) hosts Chattanooga (3-2) on Saturday.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
